Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Bauhaus

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Bauhaus

The Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Bauhaus is a nice addition to the Unico Serie and for fans of the series, would definitely be worth trying to acquire some from the European market if you can track them down. I'd have no problem smoking more of these, likely in the evening after a nice meal and I could see it pairing well with a nice brown spirit of your choosing.

Personal Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Shade Suprema

Personal Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Shade Suprema

The Drew Estate Undercrown Shade Suprema had a nice start, but went downhill in each third as some components dropped out and bitterness joined in. Past the first third, the profile is very traditional Connecticut shade with the dry and musty wood and bitterness. I likely won't return to this vitola as I would go back to the previous sizes, but if I'm in the mood for a unique size, I'll go after the Flying Pig.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Dojo Dogma

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Dojo Dogma

Definitely not my cup of tea in terms of the large ring gauge, but when it comes to overall flavor delivery, I gotta give praise to the Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Dojo Dogma. Silky/buttery mouthfeel with flavors of sweet cream, roasted chestnuts, minerals, cedar and layered red pepper spice. Well executed until the final third in which harshness and an abundance of minerals shows. This one is worth it.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate BOTL Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate BOTL Corona Gorda

With the Drew Estate BOTL Corona Gorda, the first third is the high water mark for flavor, and unfortunately the middle and last thirds provide a fairly linear and average flavor profile. There isn't anything here that grabbed my attention and I would gravitate towards a previous BOTL release.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Shade Corona Pequeña

The Drew Estate Undercrown Shade Corona Pequeña definitely fits the bill for a quick 30-40 minute cigar that gets the job done. The flavors between spice and sweet citrus were in good balance and lasted just long enough for me to either be satisfied or entertain lighting up another one.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Maduro Corona Pequeña

Smoking the Drew Estate Undercrown Maduro Corona Pequeña has resurrected my interest in the brand, and I will definitely be smoking some of the original vitolas the next time I go to the shop. This is a terrific small cigar and great for when you don't have much smoking time. There is a lot of flavor in the cigar and the second third is magnificent.

Personal Cigar Review: Crowned Heads La Coalición Gordito

Personal Cigar Review: Crowned Heads La Coalición Gordito

The Crowned Heads La Coalición Gordito started well, and if the profile from the first third had maintained itself throughout, we'd be talking about a really good cigar. As it sits, it's still a fairly good offering although the price is a bit high. I would smoke this again, but it's not something that's high on my list to revisit.

Personal Cigar Review: Herrera Estelí Miami Robusto Grande

Personal Cigar Review: Herrera Estelí Miami Robusto Grande

The Herrera Estelí Miami Robusto Grande is an awesome cigar and it has a good amount of positive traits. The blend is complex, lots of depth from start to finish and there is transitioning present as well. I think this is one of the best blends Willy has done with Drew Estate, it is the best Herrera Estelí offering in my opinion, and I love that it is made in Miami.
